Yes - that is a cool machine , I am glad someone got it that appreciates it .
I feel so odd mowing with mine but I love it , does a decent job .
You can see 'Dusty' hiding in the back with my other toys.
I got this new old stock 1971 Suzuki Savage 250 , found it in my uncles shed at his property up north .
So this is what I am working on now , needs some TLC and a clean gas tank , but this baby will run . (like a scalded dog)
My uncle gave me a ride on this bike when I was about 11-12 YO I have wanted this thing ever since . It has only 3500 mi on it .
was sitting 30 years. And after a few hours of love it is looking a lot better .

Great machines! I love the odd ones. I picked up a HOMKO push mower just for the looks. Would love to have a rider to go with it. Keep saving the old and odd ones.

I'd say ... It is yours do whatever you want with it . With the machine I got I thought long and hard what to do . I have more into it as it sits than it is probably worth .
I have no history on where it came from other than found on the side of the road. It took two months to pull the trigger on it and then I had to have it shipped for a fee.
But it just kept calling my name , My guess is that it had engine trouble from the get go. (A Lemon) because there is next to no wear on any of the moving parts .
It took a suggestion from an old pro to get it going , I had the motor opened up and it is like brand new inside . The condition is too good to restore .
As long as it makes me smile when I ride it around
With yours I would probably redo it . They are not terribly valuable so I don't think you would be doing anything wrong .
It is an oddity that you won't see many of .
BTW Grant - Here is another cool DB tractor story \/
